A bright start (WS7 weather report 20-3-2018)


At 06:20 hours the sky was generally clear and the sun was shining brightly as it began to rise in the east. It was still, however, cool with the air temperature only just above freezing point.

The radar images are showing that it will be a partly cloudy day with some occasional brighter interludes.  There is a small risk of some precipitation around 09:00 – 09:30 hours today but the risk is low (around 20%) and the system should soon move beyond our area.

Our top temperature today will be around 7-8c and overnight, with a clearing sky, we can expect our overnight minimum temperature to be around 0c.

The air pressure is rising slowly and will settle at around 1032mb by the end of the day.  This small air pressure movement will create a light breeze but nothing like the winds we have encountered over the last few days.  Those of you that stepped outside yesterday morning and up to around lunchtime will have encountered a very cold breeze indeed.

Today’s average wind speed will be around 6mph and the derivation will be from a NW-NE arc.

Summary: A cool but bright start to the day.  Generally dry with some brighter spells and just a low risk of some rain early this morning.
